in 2013 floods destroyed the camp so its new and fresh but they seriously could have done with an architect. Anyway the bungalows are comfortable but I don't like an outside kitchen Sept was extremely hot here and we saw most game midday at waterholes. This is not usual. I would recommend going in winter or April to July only.... More

We stayed overnight here in July. We had a lodge which slept 2 people. Very comfortable. We particularly liked the location as it had everything very close - river, bushveld etc. We even had an encounter with a leopard just outside the camp! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed in a hut for one nights and used the communal facilities, which were walking distance from our hut. Everything was very clean, and we were positively surprised by the ambiance of the camp. There were a lot of elephants.. We almost couldn't drive anywhere, without stumbling across an ellie. The restaurant looked very nice. Although not busy, it... More

Shingwedzi is a lovely place to camp. Even though we went at a busy time during school holidays the ablutions and camp were always kept spotless. The ladies at reception were always helpful and friendly. The shop had all yhe bare necessities you could need. The restaurant could do with some better management as the service was not good each...

If you like elephants this is the place to come. We saw over 100 in a km stretch one afternoon. Nicely renovated rooms, better than the rondavels in other camps, quite spacious with nice sitting out areas. There is an issue with bugs as we got some tiny bites. The takeaway from the restaurant was fne.

We stayed in a hut for two nights and used the communal ablutions, which were 25 meters away from our hut. Everything was very clean, and we were positively surprised by the ambiance of the camp. There were less different kinds of animals in the surroundings, but we knew this on forehand. There were a lot of elephants though. We... More

The pluses: Everything is new/redone since the 2013 flood. The paint is fresh, tile new, the furniture and linens new. The deck at the restaurant/reception has a nice view of the river. The elephants play in the river just outside camp every night before sunset. The minuses: It is a sand pit due to the flooding. The entire camp is... More

The beautiful Shingwedzi camp on the banks of the river of the same name is newly re-opened after a devastating flood in early 2013. The buildings and grounds are freshly painted, nicely groomed and very pretty. The chalet was very comfortable. The restaurant food was basic, but good. Staff was friendly and helpful trying to deal with the usual South... More

We had to gather at 0415 to start the walk. By 0615 we had walked 300m, due to the guide saying "its too dark" and then explaining everying in details for the remainder of the time. We walked a total of 2km in 3hours, saw nothing, only a dead scorpion - the 3hr walk covered only 2km on my gps.... More
